Abstract

We report passive harmonic mode locking of a soliton Yb fiber laser at repetition rates continuously scalable up to 1.5 GHz . The laser generates transform-limited 500 fs pulses, with pulse energies of 30 100 pJ . At the 31st harmonic ( 1.3 GHz ) , the cavity supermodes are suppressed by 35 dB , and the pulse-to-pulse timing jitter is 6 ps .
